Samsung's Is Developing A Smart Speaker With Bixby Built In

Samsung smart speaker Samsung Bixby smart speaker Bixby smart speaker Apple HomePod Amazon Echo

The word comes via the Wall Street Journal, which claims the project has been under development for a year already, so this is no flash-in-the-pan reactionary tactic on Samsung's part, and that also means it won't take forever to come to market. The Echo has captured over 70% of the market for voice activated speakers and Google Home has around 24%.

On Tuesday, as reported by a representative of the South Korean original equipment manufacturer (OEM) the English version of Bixby was detained over big data issues, which was cause of Samsung's incapability to gather or accumulate the data it had wished for. The device is said to be codenamed Vega, but most of its features and specs are still up in the air because Samsung has yet to decide on them.

Whatever the reason may be, The Wall Street Journal claimed a full Bixby release in the U.S. won't arrive "before the second half of July".

Amazon has the Echo, Google has the Home, and Apple has the HomePod. These are just the existing players, the rest of the competition would be coming with Microsoft's Cortana-based speaker that would launch in the fall, this year. Samsung said that Bixby would be introduced after the second half of July.

Samsung launched its new digital assistant Bixby with its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus handsets and now the company is working on a smart speaker for the software. Until then, the Bixby speaker seems like a far-fetched reality for Samsung.

The speakers, which are really "smart speakers" will be introduced by Samsung. Share your views in the comments section below.
